AUDL Justice Statement And Programming

June 1, 2020

The American Ultimate Disc League stands firmly opposed to racism and oppression, and the systemic inequities and powers that perpetuate them. In alignment with the mission of the AUDL Inclusion Initiative we will take actions to support the necessary changes needed in our sport and community. 

We will be adjusting our normal programming content this week to provide a platform for the voices of our players and community members. Beginning tonight at 9:00 PM/ET on our Instagram (@theaudl), Dallas Roughnecks player, teacher, and former Callahan winner Gabe Hernandez will be taking over our league channel to discuss systemic racism, share resources on how to help in local communities, teach allies how to be actively anti-racist, and more. 

In addition, we will be postponing our normally scheduled AUDL Rewind series this Thursday, and replacing it with a live players community panel to discuss racism in our country and examine how we all can help in forging a new way forward.
